If I said 'Gosh or Golly' at work,I'd be laughed off site. Great words though.

'Crikey...Jings....Wizard....Squiffy....Blithering.

I also like 'Ultracrepidarianism', which means the habit of giving opinions and advice on matters outside

of one's knowledge.

A few on here should know all about that one. Razz

A new one on me was an old mate from school in salford when I was phoning him I asked about another school mate and he Said sorry mate he Carked it some years back I figured it out straight away but not heard it before.

I still quite often hear "Spiffing," "Jolly good" and "What-ho." But have yet to hear tally-ho, apart from on the air. I sometimes think the forces have a little language all of their own. "Carked" I hear often, but I think it's roots are army rather than air force. "Yonder." I always remember an old guy lived on our street when I was a rug-rat and he would say, "It's over yonder." My Dad has a framed poem on a wall in his study.
The moon was shining very bright
And the stars were twinkling too
I'd never seen a more beautiful sight
Since the day I was born.

And in Lancashire dialect.
Moon wur sheighning rare an' breet
An' t' stars wur twinklin' too
Ah'd ne'er seed a grander seet
Sin' I wur Tommy Stroo.

Wonderful words in dialect but unfortunately almost forgotten now.

If ever my Gran was caught by surprise,she'd say, 'Suffering Oozits!'.

I'm still in the dark.

'I'll go to the foot of our stairs' was always a saying I could never quite understand?

Rarely hear people say, "Much obliged" any more, as an alternative to "Thank you". 

Try working out the logic of "By and large....." to mean "On the whole" Apparently, it's a nautical phrase, but I still can't see how it makes any sense at all.

I think "much obliged" was a cowboy thing - they said it all the time in Bonanza and Wagon Train and I'm sure Jed Clampitt used it quite a bit.

My grandma would exclaim "now then!" if someone told her something surprising. Why would you even put those two words together?

Shagbandy - that's a word from the past I remembered yesterday. Am I imagining it or did women who walked in a certain way used to get called this?

It is indeed nautical. With the sails set and the wind is behind thus driving the ship forward, then the wind is deemed to be "Large."
 If the wind is from other directions, generally from ahead and some difficulty is experienced in getting the ship to move in the required direction then it is said to be "By". A ship generally tacks, moves from course to course, weaving in the required direction so "By and Large," the ship moves forward in the required direction. It's a difficult conception to grasp but by and large it becomes obvious.

'Shiver me timbers' is an odd phrase.

Probably only ever used by Long John Silver.

Or Sluffy. Razz

Avast ye swab!

No I don't talk like a pirate but I do remember going on the pirate boat at Disney and laughing at the pirate jokes the 'cast member' was telling us all.

My daughter liked it so much we had to queue up immediately after to go on it again.

Arr!

Very Happy

Very Happy My Dad used to do a great impression of Robert Newton doing Long John Silver.

Still creases me up thinking of it.

Still to this day one of the best books I've ever read.

I remember I was about ten or eleven at the time (because I'd read it before starting at Grammar school) and I've not read it since, so maybe I might now be to old and cynical to enjoy it again as I did then but at the time I was glued to it and couldn't put the book down until I read it from beginning to end.

At around the same time I read all the Sherlock Holmes stories, wonderful stuff.

These days all kids seem to do is play on their phones.

Happy days back then.

Still read the Holmes books. I've downloaded them from Audible and often listen on my way to work.

Used to love disappearing off to my room,with a big glass of milk and a stash of biscuits,and my rather battered copy of 'The Hound Of The Baskervilles'.

Happy days indeed.
